Since 1986 the Maryland Symphony Orchestra has presented a free “Salute to Independence” Concert to celebrate the independence of our great nation.  Held on the first weekend in July, the “Salute” has been billed as “Maryland’s Most Patriotic Event” and has also been recognized by the American Bus Association as “One of the Top 100 Events in North America.” The evening concert typically attracts thousands of people from all over and is capped off by a spectacular fireworks display, one of the largest in the region.

Note: All seating is outdoors and uncovered. Please plan accordingly. In the event of inclement weather, the concert may be delayed.

The Maryland Symphony Orchestra thanks our generous supporters
